Bass build masterclass

Bassbuilding masterclass

Bass of your dream...

Have you ever dreamed of building your own bass from scratch? The hindrance is the lack of tools and templates and a masters degree of know how. But now I have made a fantastic dream come true for you! During two weeks you get to be in my workshop and build your own high end bass and do the steps including planing, bookmatching, glueing, routing, shaping, finishing, that I do everyday here at Unicornbass. There´s limited spots available so if you want to make your own world class bass, contact me today to get in line for the next class.

No skills needed

You do not need any prior knowledge in bass manufacturing. You will get guiding all the way and I will show you every step of the way. If there are any steps that you feel you´re afraid of because of certain tools, I will make them for you, so you get the hands on experience without the tummy butterflies.

<– Take a look at what Jan, the student in the pictures does without having built any guitars prior to the Unicornbass masterclass. Impressive isn´t it?

What to do in between the classes

Ystad / Österlen is one of the most beautiful parts of the country and in august there is lots of things to do and see, everything from art events to small farm boutiques and in between, exquisite pubs and restaurants. Ystad is the main city and is famous for quaint alleys and old timbered frame houses. On the other hand, Österlen is like the Tuscany of Sweden, lots of things to see, fantastic nature and everything is within 45 minutes drive. So if your spouse decides to tag along, there is lots of things to see and do in Österlen besides guitar making. We have 3 full time Luthiers within a 15 minute drive radius which is pretty  darn impressive for being in Sweden. I hope this will be an experience you will remember for the rest of your life!
